The Social Democrats, architects of Sweden’s welfare model, ruled for much of the last century.Analysts had said before the vote that a hung parliament, with Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt having no overall majority, would unsettle investors, but the Swedish crown firmed slightly after the results.Reinfeldt has said he is prepared to lead a minority government but could also approach the opposition Green Party for support.However, the big news of the night for a country which has long prided itself as being one of the most tolerant in Europe was that the anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats looked set to win 20 seats.“If this outcome stands we will have a scenario that most Swedish voters wanted to avoid, that is that we have a xenophobic party holding the balance of power,” said Ulf Bjereld, a political scientist at Gothenburg University.The rise in support for the Sweden Democrats has followed a move away from the party’s skinhead roots and matches developments in other European countries.The Sweden Democrats deny they are racist but both main blocs have ruled out cooperating with them.“Today we have written political history together,” said Sweden Democrat leader Jimmie Akesson.The centre-left opposition focused its campaign on people who have suffered welfare reforms under the Alliance of Reinfeldt’s Moderate Party, the Liberals, Centre and Christian Democrats.

CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo shares the secrets of her long-running success

first_imgTuesday 1 March 2011 7:11 pm CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo shares the secrets of her long-running success Show Comments ▼ Share I LOVE this city!” Maria Bartiromo waves her arm, indicating not just the art deco luxury of Claridge’s, where we meet over breakfast, but London in its teeming, cosmopolitan entirety. “Chic, sophisticated… great for business. I feel jazzed to be here. I grab the chance to come.” Bartiromo is a long-time New Yorker, famous for broadcasting her CNBC show Closing Bell from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange every weekday, and her role as a business reporter takes her around the world, to the booming cities of the emerging markets, places like* Hong Kong and Singapore, so it is comforting to find that it is the two traditional business titans, London and New York, that she says together “have my heart”.It’s an upbeat assessment, and Bartiromo goes on to say that anyone who wrote off the West’s great financial centres as in danger of losing their pre-eminence to new eastern rivals would be making the wrong bet. But that’s not born of a willingness to cast her home in a rosy light. Turning to America, she sees Ben Bernanke’s second round of quantitative easing as “debatable” if not necessarily negative, saying “the numbers are mind-boggling” and the downside risk unclear. Whatever the merits of QE2, her overall message is simple, after the crisis, people need to understand the old-fashioned lesson of good financial management and stop living beyond their means: “I’m questioning where the austerity is in the US.” She praises Chris Christie, the no-nonsense governor of New Jersey as a politician who is “not afraid of making tough choices”, and says that in the UK George Osborne has impressed her with the character he displays in his confident plans for cuts.Over twenty years, it has been this ability both to mix with the most powerful figures in finance and to explain the issues at the heart of the markets to a general audience in straightforward terms that has helped make Bartiromo famous, gaining her the nickname of “Money Honey” and leading to a walk-on role as herself in Wall Street II last year. She owes all her success as she explains it, to her mother.IN ON THE GROUND FLOOR“I was at NYU studying economics, and my mother said: ‘Take journalism, I think you’d be good at it.” Bartiromo switched major and found that when she left university she was in on the ground floor of the infant industry of business television. Interning for Lou Dobbs at CNN, she soon realised she relished the urgency of the news business and watching so many major trends from a ringside seat, from the dot-com bubble and bust to globalisation and, most recently, the financial crisis.Bartiromo’s superb contacts book has sometimes got her into hot water – in 2006, Ben Bernanke’s apparently unguarded comments to her at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner caused stocks to plunge when she reported that the markets had misunderstood him, although she suggests that Bernanke’s words were carefully chosen. But that exceptional access has been put to less controversial use in her two new books, published in quick succession.SUCCESS AND CRISISThe first is a guide to success – The 10 Laws of Enduring Success – based on her interviews with some of the world’s most successful and enterprising individuals, including Condoleeza Rice, Bill Gates and Jack Welch. The second, The Weekend That Changed Wall Street, is an account of the financial crisis from someone who knows the industry from the inside, based on wide-ranging interviews with the main players. Two books in a year on top of a fast-paced job is quite an achievement, I suggest to Bartiromo and she laughs. “I worked weekends, I slept upside down in my closet.”If she’s an insider on Wall Street now, it is a position she had to earn. The first journalist to report live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, Bartiromo recounts the unease some traders felt at her presence. One in particular, two or three times her age, told her to, “run along little girl, this is not your business.”Bartiromo dealt with this with a commitment to hard work that seems to be a defining feature. “I kept coming back. I said to myself: I have to know my stuff. Five years later, he asked to shake my hand and apologised.”Despite its reputation as a male-dominated world, and the exclusive boys’ club atmosphere of the exchange when Bartiromo started, she says that she never really felt she was not taken seriously as a woman. She shrugs off the Money Honey nickname, “I’m flattered to be noticed. It’s important to relax a little about all this – it’s serious stuff, but we’re not curing cancer.”After twenty years, with two new books and two Emmy awards, one for her reporting on the financial crisis and the second for an investigation inside the mind of Google (“There is no privacy,” she comments in passing), Maria Bartiromo doesn’t have to apologise for her presence on the stock exchange any more. Both elegant and outgoing, smart and straightforward, she is an optimist, but an honest one. As she writes in her latest book: “Are we going to avoid another September 2008? My belief is that in the long run, no, we won’t… Free markets are free markets. It’s messy, but this very freedom is what we prize above all else… Capitalism, and the freedom it implies, has the power to give people hope and help them rise above restrictive regimes. For my part, I choose to be on the side of freedom.”Bartiromo clearly delights in her success as much as she works hard to achieve it. And, having just written a book on the topic, she is keen to share her secret: be adaptable but above all “love what you do”. A voice of clarity championing free markets and fiscal responsibility, Maria Bartiromo’s passion for her work is clear.Maria Bartiromo’s show US Closing Bell can be watched on CNBC in the UK between 8-10pm Monday-Friday and she also anchors the Wall Street Journal Report at the weekend.CV | MARIA BARTIROMOBorn: Brooklyn, NY, 1967Education: Fontbonne Hall Academy; New York University, Journalism and Economics Career: Five years with CNN before joining CNBC.

Glencore names Simon Murray new chairman

Simon Murray, executive chairman of fund manager General Enterprise Management Services International (GEMS) and former Hutchison Whampoa group managing director, is the new non-executive chair of the Swiss company, which aims to list in London and Hong Kong in May.But leaked reports out on both the BBC and Sky News earlier today flagged Lord Browne to take the role, which had not been decided at the time its intention to list documents were released.It appears Lord Browne walked away from the talks over a disagreement with Glencore over governance, leaving Murray to take the position.Glencore this morning launched its long-awaited offering of up to $11bn (£6.7bn), outlining plans for a market debut that will boost its firepower for acquisitions and make paper millionaires of its partners.The world’s largest commodities trader, which will list in London and Hong Kong in what could be a record debut, confirmed in an intention-to-float document that it would sell a stake of between 15 and 20 per cent stake in the company.Murray praised Glencore management’s “track-record of value creation”. He will sit on an eight-strong board alongside chief executive Ivan Glasenberg.It is targeting an offer size of between $9bn to $11bn, comprising a primary component of approximately $6.8 to $8.8bn, and the secondary sale by existing shareholders of approximately $2.2bn.The financial details confirm an earlier Reuters report citing the company’s term sheet.The listing would value the firm at up to $60bn.Glencore is stepping into the limelight after four decades of closely guarded privacy for the firm and its executives. By scrapping its long-standing partnership structure in favour of life as a public company, Glencore will be able to reward partners but also to fund more – and larger acquisitions.It was also hit by a row over tax evasion at its Zambian subsidiary, Mopani Copper Mines, last night, as five non-governmental organisations filed a complaint with the OECD alleging Mopani manipulated its accounts to evade paying tax.

This top FTSE 100 income stock is down 11%. Is now the time to buy?

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address FTSE 100 firm AstraZeneca (LSE: AZN) is currently down 11% from its 2020 high of 7,878p. The biopharmaceutical firm now hovers around 6,887p.In my view, this company is a great buying opportunity right now. And the market appears to think so too. AstraZeneca is already up 9% from its coronavirus-related drop in March. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…A wide economic moatSome analysts say AstraZeneca has a wide economic moat. In plain English, this phrase refers to the firm’s large competitive advantage when compared with its peers.The company is a major presence in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry. AstraZeneca is a highly regarded FTSE 100 household name. It is globally renowned for its patent-protected drugs. Its innovative developing pipeline deserves a mention too.The firm’s new drug, Farxiga, performed better than expected in its drug trial. And the oncology drugs, Calquence and Enhertu, are expecting regulatory approvals this year. With Lynparza now approved in China, AstraZeneca’s fastest-growing region, the future for the firm’s medicines looks good. In fact, the provision of new drugs is offsetting the patent losses experienced with the drugs Crestor and Nexium. These losses held down AstraZeneca’s potential growth. Offsetting them with successes will enable the company to move forward.The FTSE pharma stalwart was expecting a large impact on business due to its high exposure to China. However, according to CEO Pascal Soriot the effect has so far been limited.Pharma companies often do well in an economic downturn because the demand for medicines continues. In the same way, through a pandemic, the demand for pharmaceutical goods and services may even increase. Consequently, AstraZeneca is helping the UK government with the new coronavirus testing facility at Cambridge University.But the biotech firm is focusing on more than the pandemic. It is working hard to reduce any impact of Brexit at the end of the year. The supply chain is already adjusted in preparation for the change. And it has diversified its customer base by expanding into emerging markets (EM). In 2019, revenues from EM investments increased by a whopping 84%. Sales in China alone jumped 35% to $4.9bn.A top FTSE 100 dividend payerThe reliable AstraZeneca dividend currently sits above 3%. The defensive qualities of the FTSE 100 company are being noticed by the market. The shares reached record highs earlier this year and have been climbing steadily since the early 1990s. But, unusually in the current climate, the dividend appears to be relatively safe. I think this makes the stock extremely attractive.The recent climb in the share price is in spite of 2019’s lower reported profits. It’s likely investors were taking into consideration the higher expenses related to drug launches and the Chinese expansion. These expenses pushed operating profit down 16% to $2.9bn.   AstraZeneca is certainly investing in its future. In 2019 alone, it spent $6.1bn on R&D. It has nine blockbuster drugs on the market and a very promising pipeline of label extensions and new therapies.The firm is managing the coronavirus pandemic well. It is positioning for future growth and planning for any hurdles. I think AstraZeneca is a good buy.

Foto de Andrew Burton/REUTERS.[Episcopal News Service] Un obispo jubilado y un sacerdote de la diócesis episcopal de Nueva York se encuentran entre las siete personas declarados culpables el 18 de junio de allanar un terreno propiedad de la iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad en Wall Street, durante una manifestación del movimiento Ocupar Wall Street, y sentenciados a cuatro días de trabajo comunitario.George Packard, Obispo episcopal jubilado y ex obispo sufragáneo para las institutos armados y ministerios federales, y Earl Kooperkamp, rector de la iglesia episcopal de Santa María [St. Mary’s] en Harlem, enfrentaban hasta 90 días de prisión por el más grave de los cargos, le había dicho antes a ENS Gideon Oliver, abogado de Packard.Mark Adams, un octavo acusado, fue declarado culpable de allanamiento y de cargos adicionales de un delito contra la propiedad y de posesión de instrumentos para el robo, por intentar supuestamente usar alicates para cortar la cerca que bordea la propiedad. Lo sentenciaron a 45 días de prisión en Rikers Island y se lo llevaron esposado del tribunal, dijo Oliver en una entrevista telefónica luego del juicio.“Estamos considerando si apelamos o no”, agregó. “Tenemos 30 días para tomar esa decisión. Creo que, por el momento todos nos concentramos en apoyar a Mark”.En una declaración publicada en la página web de la Trinidad, el rector, Rdo. James Cooper, dijo que la iglesia apoyaba muchos de los principios inherentes al movimiento de Ocupar Wall Street y seguiría acogiendo a los que protestaban en sus instalaciones de la vecindad de Wall Street, pero agregó que “no apoya la ocupación de propiedad privada”.En el juicio, celebrado el 18 de junio, el testimonio de Cooper “se concentró fundamentalmente en la postura de [la iglesia de] La Trinidad de no apoyar un abierto acampamento en la Plaza Duarte ni en dar permiso para ello”, dijo Linda Hanick, encargada de comunicaciones y vicepresidente de comunicaciones y mercadeo de la iglesia.Packard y Kooperkamp se encontraban entre 65 personas que fueron arrestadas el 17 de diciembre -entre ellas los sacerdotes de Long Island, Rdos. John Merz y Michael Sniffen- luego de penetrar en la propiedad de la Plaza Duarte en el Bajo Manhattan como parte de una actividad de Ocupar Wall Street con la que querían conmemorar el tercer mes de que se iniciara el movimiento.Un vídeo del 17 de diciembre mostraba a Packard subiendo por una escalera que los manifestantes habían recostado a la cerca y descendiendo al terreno dentro de la propiedad, la primera persona en entrar al lugar.OWS había estado cabildeando con la iglesia de La Trinidad para usar el espacio como un campamento de invierno, luego del desalojo de que había sido objeto el 15 de noviembre en el parque Zuccotti, cerca de la iglesia. La Trinidad rehusó, citando la falta de instalaciones sanitarias en el lugar y un contrato de arrendamiento con el Consejo Cultural del Bajo Manhattan que usa el terreno para periódicas instalaciones de arte. Packard había estado tratando de obtener un acuerdo entre los miembros de OWS y La Trinidad.El 18 de junio, dijo Oliver, “el obispo Packard testificó acerca de sus experiencias con el rector Cooper y con La Trinidad sobre su intento de actuar como un mediador entre Ocupar Wall Street y la iglesia”.“Él testificó que tenía la creencia de que el rector Cooper y la Trinidad se mostrarían indulgentes, y argüimos que desde el punto de vista legal eso se traducía en una creencia sincera y de buena fe de que tenía licencia o autoridad para entrar en el terreno”, dijo Oliver. “El juez rechazó ese argumento legal”.Oliver dijo estar “desencantado más que sorprendido” de que el juez Matthew Sciarrino declarara culpables a los ocho acusados en un proceso sin jurado. “El sistema legal está concebido para defender la propiedad privada”.“De algún modo, las condenas fortalecieron aún más los argumentos morales”, agregó.Packard dijo estar sorprendido y entristecido por el resultado del juicio. Habló con ENS desde un teléfono móvil mientras asistía, luego del juicio, a una conferencia en apoyo de Adams, quién él dijo que se había “convertido en el chivo expiatorio” por los hechos del 17 de diciembre. El fiscal recomendó una sentencia de 30 días, pero a Adams le impusieron 45 días.“Nosotros ocho [los acusados] nos sentimos como vinculados en una hermandad”, afirmó. “Nos sentimos como si nos hubieran arrebatado a un miembro de la familia de entre nosotros”.La Trinidad no tenía que mantener los cargos, pero optó por “proteger intereses fiduciarios”, dijo Packard a ENS. “Es muy triste. Significa, que a esto es a lo que ha llegado nuestra Iglesia. No tenemos suficientes promesas para sostener muchos lugares. Por tanto dependemos de los fondos de la inversión corporativa. Es una caricatura de lo que es el evangelio”.Otra decisión judicialMerz, sacerdote a cargo de la iglesia episcopal de la Ascensión [Ascension], en Greenpoint, Brooklyn, y Sniffen, sacerdote encargado de la iglesia episcopal de San Lucas y San Mateo [St. Luke and St. Matthew] también en Brooklyn, aceptaron una suspensión con vistas a una absolución (ACD, por su sigla en inglés) el 28 de febrero, lo cual significa que los cargos contra ellos serían desestimados y no tendrían ningún antecedente delictivo si no volvían a ser arrestados en los próximos seis meses, según dijo un funcionario del tribunal.Packard le dijo a ENS en marzo que él había decidido no aceptar una oferta de ACD porque quería tener la oportunidad de responder a los cargos en el tribunal.“Probablemente también me volverán a arrestar”, dijo Packard, que ha seguido participando en el movimiento Ocupar Wall Street y compartiendo sus experiencias en su blog. “No estoy buscando que me arresten, pero hay muchísimas posibilidades”.Lo volvieron a arrestar junto con otros veteranos de las Fuerzas Armadas durante una manifestación en la Plaza en Memoria de los Veteranos de Vietnam, en Nueva York. Hasta el 12 de junio, según le dijo Oliver a ENS, no lo habían instruido de cargos en ese caso.El proceso por allanamiento se aplazó el 14 de junio luego de que Jack Boyle, uno de los acusados, que había estado en huelga de hambre y había dejado de tomar sus medicamentos para el VIH por cuenta de los cargos, fuera arrestado la noche antes y no hubiera sido procesado aún. Cuando el juicio se reanudó esa tarde, unas 40 personas -entre ellas Merz y Sniffen y una monja católica romana- asistieron como observadores.En una entrevista telefónica en junio, Packard había expresado sorpresa por los cargos de allanamiento y la manera de su arresto.Cuando entré en la propiedad el 17 de diciembre, dijo, “sentí que estaba entrando en un área protegida y que estaba cerrada por la temporada. Yo había visitado a los que habían estado en huelga de hambre en el perímetro de ese espacio… tres o cuatro veces. He visitado ese lugar junto con Jim Cooper”.“Allanar no es una palabra que estoy acostumbrado a oír relacionada con una propiedad de la Iglesia”, añadió Packard. “Oigo expresiones como ‘refugio’ y ‘santuario’ e incluso… en el boletín de La Trinidad ellos hablan de ‘hospitalidad radical’”.“Es desconcertante para mí que La Trinidad llevara adelante el proceso de estos arrestos. Yo estaba completamente seguro de que retirarían los cargos”, dijo Packard. “Por alguna razón, yo no pongo ‘allanar’ y ‘propiedad de la Iglesia’ en la misma oración. Tal vez es que sencillamente soy ingenuo. Comparto una larga historia con la iglesia de La Trinidad”.Como obispo sufragáneo para el ministerio de los institutos armados, él pasó tiempo con el clero de la Trinidad cerca de la Zona Cero luego de los ataques terroristas del 11 de septiembre de 2001 a las torres del Centro Mundial del Comercio en la vecindad de la capilla de San Pablo, que pertenece a [la parroquia de] La Trinidad. “Esos fueron días horribles y espantosos, y La Trinidad se mostró al mundo lo gentil y estupenda institución que era. Ellos ofrecieron refrigerio y descanso [a los rescatistas]”.El 17 de diciembre “ni siquiera nos advirtieron de que nos iban a arrestar”, dijo.En otras protestas que él había presenciado como capellán, agregó, “siempre había ese pomposo anuncio por un magnavoz”, advirtiéndole a la gente que se exponían a un arresto.“Allí no hubo nada de eso” subrayó Packard.En su declaración del 18 de junio, Cooper dijo que La Trinidad tenía “un largo y activo historial en abordar las inequidades sociales y económicas.“Si bien simpatizamos con muchos de los objetivos expuestos por los manifestantes de OWS, no apoyamos la toma de una propiedad privada”, dice el comunicado. “La Trinidad instó a la oficina del Fiscal del Distrito a ofrecer arreglos no penales antes del juicio y a no solicitar sentencias de prisión para los acusados que hubieran optado por comparecer ante el tribunal. A todos los manifestantes les impusieron sanciones de cuatro días de servicio comunitario, excepto a uno de ellos que fue declarado culpable de otros delitos ocasionales y quien tenía varios casos abiertos sin relación alguna con la Plaza Duarte. Seguimos apoyando los principios básicos inherentes al movimiento Ocupar y seguiremos acogiendo a los manifestantes, como hemos acogido a todos los demás en nuestra comunidad, en nuestras instalaciones en la vecindad de Wall Street”.Según el proceso continuaba, así también las protestas y las “acciones” en Nueva York y otros lugares como parte del movimiento Ocupar [Wall Street] que ya tiene nueve meses. Inspirado en la Primavera Árabe, el movimiento Ocupar Wall Street, que intentaba protestar contra lo que los participantes veían como codicia y desigualdad galopantes en el mundo financiero, se inició el pasado 17 de septiembre. Los manifestantes acamparon en el parque Zuccotti (antes llamado Liberty Plaza Park) y crearon una comunidad con todos los elementos, desde una biblioteca circulante a grupos de trabajo que planificaban acciones y declaraciones sobre varias inquietudes sociales y económicas. Los participantes se organizaron valiéndose de un liderazgo “horizontal”, en lugar de jerárquico, y tomaban decisiones en “asambleas generales” democráticas.Surgieron otros acampamentos en ciudades y pueblos de todo el país y alrededor del mundo, incluido uno frente a la catedral de San Pablo en Londres. Al cabo de unos meses, las autoridades desbarataron la mayoría de los acampamentos.Algunos episcopales y otras personas de fe han apoyado el movimiento desde el principio. Marisa Egerston, candidata a doctora de la universidad de Harvard, organizó un grupo llamado Capellanes de la Protesta [Protest Chaplains] que participó en la iniciativa del parque Zuccotti y que ha apoyado al movimiento Ocupar Boston. En Nueva York, algunos clérigos episcopales, entre ellos el obispo diocesano de Long Island, Lawrence Provenzano, y los arrestados el 17 de diciembre, pasaron algún tiempo con los ocupantes del parque Zuccotti y han sido activos con el movimiento Occupy Faith NYC.El abogado de Packard es presidente del capítulo de la ciudad de Nueva York del Colegio Nacional de Abogados, que ha ofrecido una representación legal gratuita a los arrestados en relación con las protestas de OWS, dijo Oliver. “Yo me he ocupado de unos cuantos cientos de casos por mí mismo”.Oliver — que se define como un agnóstico criado como “judío liberal” — dijo en una entrevista el 12 de junio que se había sentido inspirado por Packard y agrupaciones religiosas afines a OWS como Occupy Faith. “Siento una afinidad política y una inspiración a partir de lo que ellos están haciendo… en el contexto de sus propias comunidades de fe. De cierto modo encarna realmente el concepto de ‘Ocupar todo’ que luego del desalojo de la Plaza de la Libertad adquirió un distinto y más urgente significado literal”.— Sharon Sheridan es corresponsal de ENS.
